Taught by Professor Mark J. Ravina | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
You can’t truly grasp a country’s culture without understanding its ideas about the family. Explore the three main models of Japanese family life: the aristocratic model (uji), the samurai model (ie), and the postwar model. Along the way, learn about shifting attitudes toward domestic life, including women’s rights and family planning.
